But while men's mags as we know them may be dead, lad culture is still very much alive, and so is the demand for saucy, bantz-laden content. And in this new space, meme machine The Lad Bible is the undisputed king.
For those who justify Page Three with a snide reference to freedom of press: yes, you are right. Give yourself a pat on the back, Piers Morgan. The Sun is entitled to print boobs. The point is whether they should.
Platform is valuable commodity and the supply of privileged platforms far outstrips demand. This is precisely because very few people have the former while almost everyone has, at some point, availed themselves of one of the latter.
As a woman, a journalist and a mum, I don't 'get' what the fuss is all about over page three. Comments about tomorrow's chip paper, poor little crack whores and sexual discrimination do not faze me. They do not convince most discerning consumers.
Mobile network operator EE is to remove an option to view images of Page 3 girls using old SIM cards. The firm launched an
With the common mantra that "sex sells" and the idea that we have now reached a cultural peak of sexual openness and opportunity, a so-called 'post-feminist' outlook might argue that women today are now more sexually empowered to make a broader range of sexual choices. But whilst it's laudable that women are allowed to be sexual and openly enjoy sex; surely empowerment would be doing that on our own terms?
2013 has been an amazing year for the No More Page 3 campaign, support is snowballing and to reflect the diversity of those
The Sun's new editor David Dinsmore gave a refreshingly candid Q&A, in an age where editors are often mocked for not being willing to stick their head above the parapets, at the London Press Club on Tuesday. Over 50 people were in attendance including some journalism students.
The Sun's female readers are more keen on Page Three than the men, the paper's editor has claimed. David Dinsmore said readers
Around a year ago, I had occasion to work with three other men on some construction projects for film sets. The work was scattered around a number of venues across London, and each job required various specialised tools...
A Daily Mirror advert featuring a woman in a bath has been banned from London Underground - because it contains 'sexual imagery
We don't hear about perpetrators. Headlines always read "Woman raped in Hartlepool", "Study shows 24% students victims of abuse". Unless perpetrators are famous or politically sensitive then reporting is passive...this gives the impression rape 'just happens', ruins lives like a fair-weather thunderbolt.
Every morning I wake up and pull back the curtains in my bedroom to the sight of a giant blow-up sex doll in the backyard. This somewhat minor dilemma I'm currently experiencing in my backyard is similar in some ways to what thousands of other women and men experience every time they walk into their local newsagent for a paper.
This one picture that tells young girls their aspiration and achievement will be encouraged and recognised, that women have the right to claim equal visibility with men, and that our opinion matters. The removal of that symbol is devastating.
The NAHT have just announced publicly their support for the No More Page 3 campaign, an acknowledgement of the harm caused to young people by the public visibility of Page 3 images from those on the frontline.
The No More Page 3 campaign is gathering pace at an extraordinary rate. It is in the right place at the right time. Public concern over easy access to sexualised imagery, and the influence of this on the psychology of children, has never been higher.
Lads' mags, a further form of sexual objectification which has been lying dormant since before I arrived at university, has been permitted to sell in my Students' Union Shop seemingly innocently alongside less offensive food items.
Sign the petition and say no to Page Three because women contribute to society in many ways that do not involve a man's erection.
High Street retailers could face sexual discrimination or harassment claims if they continue to stock lads' mags, a group
It's the continent that brought the world Page Three and nudist beaches, but these images could be on their way to being
